CHARLOTTE — Charlotte Hornets guard Malik Monk has been suspended indefinitely because he violated the NBA’s anti-drug program, the NBA announced Wednesday.

“The Charlotte Hornets are disappointed in Malik’s decision-making that resulted in his suspension,” the team said in a news release. “As an organization, we do not condone his behavior. However, we are committed to supporting Malik during this time.”

His sudden appearance on the floor the last two games made me wonder if we were showcasing him for a trade.  If so, we sure got a good showcase.  We are guard rich and front court poor.  If Malik can continue to score like this, I'd rather keep him over Devonte.

I've conceded that while I was wrong on Monk being the second coming of Devin Booker, he IS a player that is an important part of a championship team. He is the irrational confidence guard that can light another team up for 30 on any given night. Many championship teams in the past have had this player. Jason Terry, Eddie House etc.

Right now everyone is settling into their roles nicely. All are very comfortable.  When Devonte returns it should be interesting to see how the comfort is impacted. Monk has basically taken over Devonte's new role. 

Bamba would offer some pretty good minutes. Hopefully get Hornets out of protect the paint mode and not leave open threes.

Would you keep Monk or Graham at this point?

I wouldn't even give up on him developing consistency and being much more than that. His recent comments about growing up and actually putting in the time and effort to study film and focus, etc. were pretty damn revealing. If he keeps on the right track in that regard I see no reason he can't develop even further. Also, for all the criticism of Borrego for playing the Martin scrubs over Monk earlier, as much as that seemed warranted maybe there was a good reason for it... Hopefully he's turned a corner and can become an important core piece here.

If Oladipo is available I can't imagine they wouldn't inquire about bringing him in. Melo, Oladipo, Hayward, PJ, Zeller. 

Obviously I would still like an upgrade at C but perhaps the Rockets would be willing to let Victor go for a combination of Monk, Rozier/Graham, and a pick?

Thoughts?

ur crazy.. Terry is better than Oladipo right now.. Oladipo is older and has injury issues, isn't a great 3pt shooter.. trading Terry straight up - let alone in combo with Graham or Monk WITH a pick.. 🧐

Our backcourt is set if you ask me, I love its make up right now and wouldn't target any guard in a trade/free agency, even if they are theoretically an upgrade. Melo and Rozier are a great starting pair and Graham and Monk are incredible off the bench. 

We only need to upgrade the frontcourt. Jury is out on PJ being an ideal starter at PF, he obviously shouldn't be playing much at C. Miles is a great SF off the bench and could be a 6th man of the year candidate in time. Unless our 2nd round rooks surprise, we have nothing good at C and just PJ at PF, who has been inconsistent. Wish we could've gotten Jarret Allen, not sure what other options there are there except just continuing to try to draft well.

I would want to get more from a future 1st round pick than just Mo Bamba

If this is a playoff team a pick outside the lottery isn't too much to pay for me.  Bamba is a good developmental big who would fit well IMO.

He does play a little soft so I can see the concern.
